phillips in paris for us. the french foreign minister has been talking about ukraine, suggesting that there could be sanctions voted in as early as tomorrow. >> yes, that's right. he's talking about the possibility of a visa ban, russian officials tied up and assets frozen. what europeans want to do is get the act together, get the act in a row before the meeting in brussels, and coordinate with the americans, and iron out any differences. and john kerry is here as well. there'll be meetings with sergei lavrov, flying in from madrid, an attempt to bridge the vast perception with the russians, and also the west needs to be speaking from the same sheet, if you like, and that will be the focus of the diplomacy in paris.
